The Great Barn

Hampshire

Description

The Great Barn is ideal for the holding of Wedding Receptions and Wedding Photography. It is situated in a 3 acre site just to the south of Titchfield Abbey, with which it was associated since its erection in 1410AD. The Great Barn at Titchfield is...156ft. long by 41ft. wide and 34ft. high and was built for the monastery situated at Titchfield Abbey in 1409/11, confirmed by dendrochronology (ring-dating) of the timbers. It is the largest barn in Hampshire, and one of the largest in England, and its unique structure, and magnificent condition, places it in the forefront of examples of medieval contemporaneous architecture. Of particular interest are the ‘cruck-like’ timbers in the alternate minor trusses, and the longitudinal braces between the ridge beam and king posts in the apex of the roof. read more
